Using dark cabinets in the kitchen

Although white glossy cabinets remain the most common and popular choice for kitchens across the UK, dark kitchen cabinets are growing in popularity. For traditional kitchens, to contemporary kitchens, dark colours can look extremely effective. Here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to using dark cabinets in the kitchen.

Why use dark cabinets in the kitchen?

Dark cabinets can suit a lot of different kitchen styles and themes. For example:

⦁ Dark cabinets in a natural themed kitchen can feel cosy and homely, while also complementing the natural timber and stone used throughout.
⦁ In a contemporary kitchen, dark cabinets can be extremely effective, especially when a bold colour is used. This can really make a statement.

Deep blue cabinets

Kitchen cabinets with a very deep blue colour can be extremely effective. These will look stunning when paired with white subway tiles, that make the rich colour stand out. Deeper blues, like navy, can help your kitchen feel classy and sophisticated.

Grey kitchen cabinets

Grey is a great option for kitchens because of the range of shades that can be used. Choose a darker grey to make a statement with your kitchen cabinets. Pair this with timber effect floor tiles, and natural stone to complete your rustic kitchen.

Black cabinets

Contrast your black cabinets with white walls and your contemporary kitchen will look stunning. Opt for a glossy finish on the black cabinets, not a dull matt, otherwise the room may end up looking too dark.
